- globe (you
could find damaged one on the side of the street or at a garage sale);
- some type
of writing material;
blade or box cutter.
your exacto blade, very carefully slice the globe in two across the equator
(most aged globes are just joined here with glue or strapping anyway, so this
completes in about a couple of seconds);
- hold the
light socket of your pendant light on the top of your globe (north or south
pole according to which half you\’re utilizing) and employ it as a stencil as
you trace around it to mark the spot where it will be placed;
your exacto blade, cut across the ring you just proclaimed (the lip of the
pendant light must cover this region once it\’s assembled so this does not have
to be a completely clean cut);
- color the
inside of your globe;
- set up the
pendant light into the ceiling (use an electrical installer or go with the
plug-in edition should you do not understand how to change the existing feature

light socket through the hole at the top of your globe, screw on the cap, pop
